Another extreme hurricane season is officially over. Here’s what we learned

External News Details

Atlantic hurricane season officially ended December 2nd, and while the number of named storms did not reach the record-breaking levels of 2020, the impacts nevertheless were catastrophic. The Atlantic Ocean still had an above-normal number of hurricanes in 2021, for the sixth year in a row. It was also the third most active season since record-keeping began in the mid-19th century. Susan Lozier, College of Sciences Dean and Betsy Middleton and John Clark Sutherland Chair, says there is more energy available, so "intensification of these hurricanes is expected." Lozier, a physical oceanographer, is also president of the American Geophysical Union
